Info • Russula earlei BPL698 v1.0


[June 2019] The Russula earlei genome was extracted from a metagenomic sample consisting of the fungus and several bacterial species. The sample was sequenced with PacBio and assembled with Falcon. The fungal genome was then annotated with the JGI Annotation Pipeline. The mitochondrial genome was assembled separately and is available on the Download page. The co-isolated bacterial genomes of Collimonas pratensis and Bradyrhizobium sp. 1108993 were also assembled separately and are also available on the Download page.

The metatranscriptomic sample was sequenced with Illumina and assembled with Trinity. Unlike the metagenome, the metatranscriptome was not separated into its constituent species compartments, and thus mapped relatively poorly to the fungal genome.

Summary statistics for the Russula earlei BPL698 v1.0 release are below.
